The state of the art is the highest level of development achieved at a particular time. The state of the art at any moment is not a destination but rather a point from which to imagine new possibilities, pursue new innovations, and, ultimately, establish a new state of the art. While we will be examining the state of the art during the next two days, we also need to exchange ideas about how to innovate the next state. In fact, the success of this conference will not be in how well we present the current, but rather in how well we create a new path of investigation for the future.
